2013 Quim Batlle "Foranell" Picapoll Alella (Previously $33)

SKU #1250912

Produced from Picapoll (aka Picpoul in southern France) in the D.O. of Alella (just north of Barcelona) this does not resemble the light, simple summer quaffers from across the Pyrhenees. With its fruit grown on a great granite vineyard, 7-10 days of skin maceration and two years ageing (one in tank, one in bottle) this is a more serious, textural wine to enjoy with friends and a well prepared meal. Fresh yellow fruited aromas lead to more of the same on the palate, which also shows ripe citrus and loads of persistence. Very cool stuff! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
